How we updated a 60’s kitchen

Our latest rehab is on the market and I’m enjoying reminiscing over where it began! Digging through old photos is always the fun part. Sometimes it’s hard to remember how far a house has come!

For this kitchen we kept the original cabinets but we removed the cook top and built in oven to provide space for an stove. We also added a lovely back splash, cast iron sink, cool vent hood, and another poured concrete counter top! Painting the cabinets a soft grey and updating the light fixtures did a lot to modernize this lovely space.

This view looks into the dining space and you can see the front door. kitchen to front door

Removing the old vent hood connected the two spaces with a nice eye line view of the front door and dining space.kitchen after front door

And did you notice the floors?? That’s a textured design in stained concrete!! We use Solid Impressions for all our stained concrete needs. floors

And after!!! We cut out the cabinets on the left to make space for a large refrigerator (anyone tried to squeeze in a new fridge in these old kitchen built-ins?! Because they don’t fit!)kitchen after 1

Cabinets are painted with Sherwin Williams gray called Passive. It’s hard to find the right grey but this one was a very good fit for our design!
